We were delighted to get a visit from big boys in 5th class who came to show us what they have being doing with their Vex Robotics. We were suitable impressed by what we saw. Well done boys!
We had great fun doing an experiment with our student teacher Mr. Murphy today. The boys had to predict whether they thought particular objects would sink or float before they discovered the outcome for themselves.
Third class built their own rockets last week for Space Week. Check out http://www.spaceweek.ie for more information. Well done 3rd class.
